Kirk: Captain's log, stardate... well, to tell the truth, I don't know the stardate. Spock, Dr. McCoy, and I have been trying to find a way to get back to our own reality; so far to no avail. I'm beginning to wonder if there if there even is a way.
Kirk: What is it, Spock?
Spock: I believe we may have to consider the possibility of not getting back to our reality.
Kirk: Yes, I just don’t want to give up hope just yet.
McCoy: Well, Jim... if we don't get back, what will we do?
Kirk: I don't know, Bones. I don't know.
Kardok: Are you the one called Zronto?
Assassin: Yeah, what's it to ya?
Kardok: There are some men that turned against my master, and I need you to eliminate them.
Assassin: So, let me get this straight... there are some guys who obviously escaped your powerful grip, and now you want me to take care of them?
Kardok: That is correct.
Assassin: Well, I'm in.
Assassin: For the right price.
Kardok: Fine. How's this? (hands him some money)
Assassin: Well, mister...
Kardok: I'd prefer to keep my name anonymous for now.
Assassin: Alright. So where are these guys you want me to take care of?
Kardok: Come with me.
Kirk: Spock, are you sure there's no way to get back?
Spock: I have considered every option captain and I assure you...
(they hear footsteps and a loud noise)
McCoy: What was that?
Kirk: I don't know.
(they grab their phasers and hear gunfire)
Kirk: Come on!
McCoy: Well, Jim, it seems whoever this is has managed to cut off our only escape route.
Kirk: Calm down, Bones, there's always a way out.
McCoy: Did you say something?
Johnson: You need help?
(he points phaser at her)
Johnson: Hey! Don't shoot!
Kirk: I remember you. You were working for X.
Johnson: Yeah, X's dead, and now Kardok is out to get you.
Spock: Out to get us?
Johnson: Yeah, and we won’t stop until you're all dead. So... you want a way out?
Kirk: Yeah, that would be nice.
(Johnson runs towards the gunfire)
McCoy: Where's she going?
Kirk: I don't know, but if she can get us out of here...
McCoy: Jim! Are you out of your damn mind?? She could be leading us into a trap!
Kirk: I'd rather risk it out there than in here! Come on!
(they all walk outside)
McCoy: I don't hear anything.
(Spock raises his eyebrow)
McCoy: I wonder what happened to that guard.
Kirk: I don’t know.
(Kirk glances at Spock)
Kirk: What is it, Spock?
Spock: I was just thinking.
McCoy: About what?
Spock: Why did she help us? It does not seem logical. After all, she was working for X.
Kirk: I don't know. Maybe she had a change of heart.
(they hear rustling in the bushes)
Johnson: Hey guys, mind if I join you?
McCoy: How in the blazes do you keep doing that?!
Johnson: Doing what, doctor?
McCoy: How do you know that I'm a doctor?
Johnson: I looked you up.
(Spock raises an eyebrow)
Johnson: You're Mr. Spock. And you're Captain Kirk, I presume.
Kirk: It seems you know us more than we know you.
McCoy: So... who do we have pleasure of addressing, miss...
Johnson: Johnson, Samara Johnson.
Kirk: Well, Miss Johnson...
Johnson: Call me Samara.
Kirk: Samara... How is it that you wound up working for X?
Johnson: I dunno. I was working at Starfleet as a guard already and when he attacked, he made some people work for him, while others joined him willingly.
McCoy: So, which were you?
Johnson: Uh... so, you guys need food? I have some supplies.
Kirk: May I ask you something?
Kirk: Why are you helping us?
Johnson: Because... well, I don’t know... when you killed X, I didn't know what to do, so I decided to follow you.
Kirk: Uh-huh... well, thank you for the food. You're welcome to stay here if you like. We’re leaving early tomorrow, so we should be getting to sleep.
Johson: Sure. I could use some shut-eye.
(They all lie down)
Kirk: Night Bones.
McCoy: Goodnight, Jim.
Kirk: Goodnight, Spock.
Spock: Goodnight, Jim. Goodnight, doctor.
McCoy: Goodnight, Spock.
Johnson: Uh... goodnight...
McCoy: Jim! Where'd she go??
McCoy: The guard, you know... Samara?
Kirk: I don’t know. Where's Spock?
McCoy: Maybe he's out meditating or doing one of his sacred Vulcan rituals.
Kirk: Bones, this is serious. We've got to find him.
McCoy: Well I hope he's not in trouble.
Kirk: I just wanna make sure he's alright with Kardok after us.
McCoy: Fine, fine with me.
Kirk: Come on.
McCoy: Well, I don't see him anywhere, Jim.
Kirk: Where could he be?
McCoy: I don't know.
Kirk: We've got to keep looking.
McCoy: Can't we rest for a little while first?
Kirk: No, Bones. We've got to find him. If you were missing, don't you think he would search until he found you?
McCoy: Well, I don't know, I'm not him.
Kirk: Just come on.
(they hear a twig snap in the woods)
Kirk: Wait, did you hear that?
(they turn around and nearly are hit by phaser bolts)
Kirk: Watch out!
(Johnson runs towards them)
McCoy: Where have you been?
Johnson: Searching for Spock.
Kirk: But when we got up, you were already gone.
Johnson: Yeah, I woke up early and saw he was gone, so I decided to go look for him.
McCoy: Well, how thoughtful of you.
McCoy: How do you plan to get us out this time?
Johnson: Follow me.
Kirk: Do you know who is following us?
Johnson stops walking.
Johnson: This way.
Kardok: Why hello there, Mr. Spock is it? Remember me?
Kardok: So you do. Are you familiar with a certain guard of mine named Samara Johnson?
Kardok: Ah good.
Spock: Why do you ask?
Kardok: Because, she is the one who brought you to me.
Spock: So you are implying that she is still working for you and that you sent her to befriend us only to lead to our capture?
Kardok: Precisely, only not in so many words.
Spock: You do realize that my friends will not stop until they find me?
Kardok: Yes, in fact, I'm counting on it.
Kirk: So, where are we headed?
Johnson: Um, I'm not sure.
McCoy: Oh, so our brilliant-minded savior is lost?
Johnson: Is he always like this?
Johnson: Okay, I think... oh yeah, okay, I know where we are now.
McCoy: Good to know.
Johnson: (spins around and draws her phaser)
Kirk: Whoa, what are you doing?
Johnson: Please make him stop!! He's driving me insane!
Kirk: Yeah, well... you'll get used to it.
McCoy: So, where are we going? Should I stop and ask for directions?
Johnson: (grumbles to herself) I'm not lost.
Kirk: Bones, bones, bones. What am I going to do with you?
McCoy: I feel like we've been going in circles.
Johnson: Come on, it's not too much farther.
Kirk: What's not?
Johnson: Just keep up.
Kirk: Okay, stop.
McCoy: What's wrong Jim? You worn out already?
Kirk: Please tell us where we're going.
Johnson: To find your friend.
Kirk: We've been walking around for hours. Where are we really going?
Johnson: Get down!
McCoy: Who the hell keeps shooting at us?!
Kirk: I don't know, but I'm about to find out.
Johnson: Are you crazy?!
(Kirk runs through the bushes; a masked figure jumps out at him)
McCoy: Jim watch out!
(The figure tackles Kirk)
McCoy: Come on! We've got to help him!
(Johnson points the phaser at McCoy)
Johnson: I'm sorry, doctor. (she takes his phaser)
McCoy: Are you out of your damn mind?
(Kirk and the figure struggle)
McCoy: Wait a minute! You're working for them, aren't you?
Johnson: You're pretty smart doctor. Come on.
(Kirk manages to escape the figure by bashing him over the head with a rock)
Kirk: Bones? Samara? Where are you? Oh, great, I guess it's up to me, then.
(Kirk begins walking)
Johnson: Here is the doctor, my lord.
Kardok: Very good. Where is the other?
Johnson: The assassin was fighting him when I left.
Kardok: Hmmm. (he turns to the guard) Any word from him?
Guard: No, sir.
Kardok (turns back to Johnson) I have one last task for you. Bring me Kirk – alive.
Johnson: Yes, my lord.
